Standards of Academic Progress

Effective for classes beginning Fall 2011

Students who receive financial aid must be enrolled in an eligible program and are required to maintain the following standards of satisfactory academic progress (SAP). These measurements shall be used to determine eligibility for all federal Title IV aid, state and institutional aid, and for other financial assistance unless the terms of a particular grant or funding source require additional terms. SAP is calculated at the end of each term. Some aid programs require higher standards, such as higher grade point averages (GPA) or specific enrollment statuses. Students receiving financial aid must have a declared major in a degree or eligible certificate program. Students are expected to be continually aware of their progress toward their completion. A student who fails to meet the standard of progress (SAP) will be notified by email at the email address on the student record; however, failure to receive notification will not change the SAP status.

Appeals will only be granted for conditions causing extreme hardship to the student, such as the death of a family member, illness or injury of the student, or other special circumstances. The appeal should include supporting documentation regarding your mitigating circumstance, such as medical statements or death certificates, or other supporting documentation. Special circumstance considerations will be limited to extreme hardships. Only one appeal for mitigating circumstances will normally be considered during a student’s enrollment at TSTC. However, on a case by case basis, the Financial Aid Office will review additional appeals, based on the student’s circumstances. The Financial Aid Office will consider recommendations from counselors or advisors when reviewing appeals. Appeals are reviewed by the Director of Financial Aid, the Assistant Director of Financial Aid or a Financial Aid Officer.  Students may appeal the decision made by the Financial Aid Department to the Director of Retention or the Assistant Director of Retention.  Appeals for students who have exceeded the maximum time frame are reviewed by the Retention Department.   Students are notified of the appeal decision by email.  The decision of the Retention department is final and cannot be appealed. Not enrolling for one or more terms does not remove the probation or suspension status.
